You won't want to miss the final conference for the Recognition of Prior Learning in Practice (RPLip) project.

Join us online to discuss Recognition of Prior Learning in Higher Education!

Are you a validation (RPL) practitioner working in teaching, learning, research, policy or management? Do you work at a higher education institution, ministry, national agency or quality assurance agency?

If so, we'd like to invite you to join the RPLip project in discussing what we've learned about the successful implementation of RPL in higher education. Among other things, we'll focus on:

  • going beyond your role as an individual champion in promoting a strategic, connected and committed institution
  • creating a validation-friendly system, from learning outcomes to guidelines and procedures that build on transparent phases - all through identification, documentation and assessment
  • enabling effective peer learning

Across Europe, HEIs are focused on contributing to life-long learning in service to their communities and regions. As a part of European, national, and institutional responses, RPL is an essential tool that meets the needs of citizens by supporting flexible learning paths.

Nobody should be required to study something they already know!
